A list to help with your daily game.

Screengrab via New York Times

Wordle is a game that can bring together people from all over the world for a common goal, to guess the same five-letter word of the day.

Sharing your results on social networks easily becomes part of the routine of the most assiduous players, not only because it is quite simple to do, but also because it is one of the most fun things about the game.

Many players don’t want to embarrass themselves by sharing their results, so they look for ways to win the game more consistently.

One of the simplest ways to improve performance, in addition to having a strong vocabulary knowledge, is to choose the first guessed word well. This is because the first attempt is the only time when there is no hint available to the player about the correct answer.

The best way to get information right off the bat is to use a word that contains common letters seen in Wordle answers. So letters like the vowels ‘E’ and ‘A’, as well as the consonants ‘R’, ‘L’, ‘T’, and ‘S’ are good choices to be on the first try. Making words like ‘SLATE’, ‘STARE’, and ‘LEAST’ great options.

All the words on this list are accepted by Wordle and will give you more clues as to which letters are present or not in the word of the day until you get it right.

Another good tip to get it right as early as possible is to find which other vowels are present in the word of the day to narrow down your options.
